Hilary S. | Birth Doula in Bothell, WA

Your Wellness Storey, LLC

    Practice overview

    I am a trained birth doula through the Simkin Center at Bastyr University and am working towards my certification through DONA International. I have 10 years of experience in the pre & post natal fitness industry, where I gained extensive knowledge of the anatomy as well as physical changes that occur throughout each stage of pregnancy, and postpartum considerations after delivery. I'm passionate about supporting moms, through the entire process of becoming a parent, from conception, to birth, and beyond. Being invited into the room during your labor and delivery is truly an honor and a privilege. I strive to have each of my clients feel heard, seen, and leave feeling confident that they had the birth experience they wanted, even if it ends up looking different than planned.

      If we didn’t have Hilary, we would not be able to have a natural birth. As a first time Mommy, Hilary gave me so much support and encouragement during and after labor. I couldn’t imagine that I would be able to make it without her. We are so thankful to have her along our birth journey.

      Hilary was an exceptional doula and a wonderful addition to our birth story. As first time parents, we felt prepared going into labor and what to expect thanks to our initial meetings with her. She was responsive and attended our hospital labor throughout the entire process. When labor took a couple turns, Hilary was there to explain what options we had and what we might need to consider. She came prepared and ensured our stay and delivery were as comfortable as possible. Her post-labor visits were very helpful in navigating those first few weeks of parenthood as well. We appreciated having her as a another resource to help with the wild ride that child birth really is. Thank you, Hilary for being there for us!

      For my 3rd birth I decided to hire a doula. I knew Hilary had extensive knowledge in prenatal and postnatal fitness. She has supported moms in all stages of motherhood through the FIT4MOM programs. I knew she was a perfect match for what I was looking for in a doula. I’m even more thankful she was there during my labor. She provided me with all the support I needed to get me through a difficult labor that didn’t go as planned. She provided me the strength I needed with her words of encouragement and didn’t leave my side the whole time. Her 3 day follow up, when she came to my house to check on me and baby was so helpful. It allowed me the opportunity to talk about my birth experience and how I perceived it. She was able to tell me about her point of view and helped me change my mindset to make me feel powerful and strong. Thank you so much for all your support through my pregnancy, labor and beyond!
